ARBUS AND WEST

Arbus and west

by Stephen Sewell
The Art of Exposure: Photographer, Diane Arbus meets Hollywood icon, Mae West in 1964.

Stephen Sewells Arbus and West draws on the infamous meeting in 1964 between two extraordinary women, legendary photographer, Diane Arbus and Hollywood bombshell, Mae West, and imagines what might have transpired. Stephen has masterfully created a power play of sexuality and intrigue.

Hollywood bombshell Mae West built her career on lookin good walkin the walk and talkin the talk while legendary photographer Diane Arbus was famous for finding beauty in the everyday. When Diane turns up at Maes glistening LA apartment in 1964 to take her portrait, tensions quickly flare. Maes version of herself is very different to the one Diane wants to catch on film. But whose version wins out when a master of illusion meets a master of truth?
